Thunderstone Quest by AEG is the third in a line of deck builder style games with the Thunderstone name. I never played the first two, but each iteration got a little more love from the fans. This version certainly knocks it out of the park and my friend and I played through a good portion of the included "quests" (which were basically recommended card to play with). The miniatures it comes with aren't strictly necessary, but they do look better then colored pieces of wood. Because it is a board game, I wanted to give everyone a separate colored base to make them stand out a little more and give them a bit more personality.
The warrior's color scheme is inspired by Iron Man. I was able to borrow a metallic red paint (Retro Red Steel) and I like how he turned out for the most part.
For the wizard, I wanted to use my MSP SAMPLE , which is the pinkish/purplish color of her...cloak (?).
I gave the dwarven barbarian a white beard because, frankly, nothing is scarier than an old barbarian. He sorta fell into the brown color because I painted the fairy druid right before him and wanted a darker color.
The fairy druid didn't quite turn out how I'd like, but it still works. There is a great version of him on Board Game Geek that had an autumn color scheme so I tried to emulate that.
The explorer was the last figure I did because he wasn't really that interesting. I do like how his bags and pipes came out.
I like how the rogue came out the best. I decided early on that she's have purple hair and a purple color scheme. One thing that annoyed me about her was the fact that I used several different types of black on her outfit, but it all just looks the same when all is said and done. Still, I love how she turned out.
Original model, from board game Wander: Cult of Barnacle Bay, by Panda Cult Games.
Customer requested a trident in the hand and a base. Couldn't find a freekkkin trident anywhere except some European company that couldn't get it here until after the deadline, so I had to mod a spear.

C&C or things to do better next time would be much appreciated.
This implausibly zaftig Soviet lady (50226) has been painted up for well over a year, but I didn't want to take pictures until I had a good background. The propaganda posters for the Moon Communists took care of that problem, though! Comrade Kozlov comes with some rubble, timbers and a brick wall, which I elected to use as set dressing, A few coffee stirrers made a barricade of the right height for her to lean on. Give her a line of sight down the Stalingrad streets and she will be Death in high boots.
I'm not even going to make a pretense towards accuracy on the uniform. I just like that pale greyish purple. (I think it was Slaanesh "grey" mixed with a drop of dark blue or maybe purple wash).
More Soviets inbound!
“The ship was found more than 17,000 feet below the surface, on the floor of the South Pacific Ocean near the Solomon Islands. The USS Hornet is best known for launching the important Doolittle Raid in April of 1942 and its role in winning the Battle of Midway.
Richard Nowatzki, 95 now, was an 18-year-old gunner on Hornet when enemy planes scored several hits, reports CBS News' Mark Phillips.”
